Donna Busche filed her new complaint Monday, alleging retaliation by her employer, URS Energy and Construction, Inc. and Bechtel National, Inc. She filed the new complaint with the U.S. Department of Labor.
Busche alleges that she has experienced continued harassment, isolation, exclusion, and unwarranted criticism as she tries to ensure that one of the largest environmental cleanup efforts in the world is completed safely.
Busche works at the construction site of a plant intended to turn Hanford's radioactive wastes into a glasslike substance.
Hanford for decades made plutonium for nuclear weapons, and the site near Richland is now engaged in a massive environmental cleanup.
